U.S. EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program

Orissa International offers the EB-5 program to foreign investors that want to obtain US permanent residency, and US citizenship, for their families. Administered by the United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS), the program is one of the fastest ways to get US permanent residency, and it has no requirements for the foreign national to be sponsored by a company or relative. The investment amount is also significantly lower compared to immigrant investor programs of other developed countries.


We have a 15-year track record in consulting EB-5 investors, and have a 100% approval rate. We work with a leading Regional Center which has facilitated more than 6,700 green card approvals, raised more than US$2.6 billion in EB-5 capital and repaid US$870 million to investors. Its performance has been certified by an independent audit conducted in conformance with standards established by the American Institute of Public Certified Accountants.
